So much for 7/7/07 being a lucky day. But first, here's what happened to Jeff and Brendon at the Fishercats baseball game last night:
As they're walking to the ticket counter, a man approaches them with 2 tickets and says "I'm not selling these, I'm just looking for a father and son to give them to. Here, take them. The seats are right next to where I'm sitting." So Jeff takes them and he and Brendon sit next to the guy and his 20 year old son.
The man tells Brendon he'll catch a ball for him. Brendon is excited at the prospect.
Jeff and Brendon go to get some hotdogs and come back to their seats. As Jeff is making his way to his seat, he feels something land on his arm with a big thud. As he's relaying the story to me, I say "A ball landed on your arm?!!"
Brendon chimes in and says no, "It was a squirrel!" and laughs hysterically.
A squirrel came out of the air from no where and landed on Jeff's arm, scurried for a few seconds and ran off. He was stunned and wondered where the hell it came from as did the other spectators sitting around him. They were all looking up and couldn't figure it out because there is nothing near them where the squirrel could have climbed up.
OK, so a little later, Jeff hears beeping and is getting annoyed that someone won't shut off their cell phone or pager or whatever it was.
He takes Bren to the bathroom, and he still hears the beeping, so he has him take out his pump and sure enough, it's run out of batteries.
So they go to an EMT on duty at the ballpark, but he doesn't have a AAA battery, so the EMT accompanies Jeff to the exit so that he can make sure he gets back in. Jeff stops at a little souvenir shop near the exit and asks if they have any AAA batteries. They say they don't sell them.
Jeff spots a remote control for the monitors to view the game and asks what size it takes: It takes AAA. The EMT says he needs them for a medical emergency and Jeff takes one to pop into the pump.
Jeff and Bren return to their seats and the guy who they were sitting with who gave them the tickets hands Brendon a baseball....that he caught! The man didn't lie. The man's 20 year old son said, "I've never gotten a baseball at a game before." I think he was jealous.
Well, the pump starts acting up again, but they finished out the game, saw fireworks and came home.
I won't go into detail, but basically the pump's battery cap is crap. I tried another cap that is supposed to be used for the meter attachment we have for the Cozmo that we never use. But that didn't work.
We of course called the company and told them to send us a meter rather than just the cap.
They'll send it out on Monday to arrive on Tuesday. After midnight last night, we woke Brendon and told him he has to get shots for a couple of days everytime he eats something. He doesn't remember what it was like to get shots like he did for that first year he was diagnosed. Last night, Brendon got his first shot in over 3 years. 15u of Lantus. He took it like a champ.
